A nice Vintage Flying Experience located handily in Stacksteads, Lancashire.
Discover the unbeatable thrill of captaining a Boeing 737 jumbo jet with this high-tech flight simulator experience for one. Begin with a welcome and refreshments from the co-pilot (a trained commercial pilot), before planning out the route. From Las Vegas to London, there are a number of national and international airports to take-off and land at, and aspiring pilots can even select the weather conditions (which range from snow to electrical storms!) and time of day the plane takes off. After a briefing, it’s time to get comfy in the cockpit, which features real Boeing controls and a hyper-realistic 180 degree wraparound screen, and prepare to fly, with a total flight time of one hour. A thrilling way to pick up real flight techniques.
